Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information and Resources: Library Policies

Provides information on resources available to students, faculty, and staff while working remotely.

The University has lifted the occupancy restrictions in our buildings. Seats that were previously removed have been restored to the Law Library. Masks are now optional in the library unless you have an existing exemption from the vaccine requirement. Masks do still need to be worn in elevators and the classroom. The Law Library has hand sanitizer dispensers located throughout the building, generally located next to elevators. Each of the stack levels has a dispenser next to the stack elevator. There are also sanitizers on each floor of Gerber Glass next to the main elevator.

Study rooms can once again be used by study groups. Each law student may book a room for up to 2 hours a day, 7 days in advance.



The library is only open to current students, faculty, and staff, and alumni. The library remains closed to members of the public. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

All materials that regularly circulate will be available to borrow. Patrons may come to the library to locate and check out materials at the Circulation desk. 

Patrons may request pickup of materials through the request button available on the Library Catalog. Although this process is usually only used for books located on the other two campuses, we will also allow students to request law library books through this means, while the pandemic is underway. We will be retrieving all requested materials once a day at 10 AM M-F. Materials requested after 10 AM will be available the next business day. Materials requested on the weekend will be available the next business day. You will receive an email when your materials are ready for pick-up. All materials checked out to patrons will be available for pickup at the Circulation desk.

As of Fall 2021, all of the reserve materials will once again be checked out for only two hours at a time.

Please return all items to the return bin located on the covered landing outside Gerber Glass. All library fines for Spring and Fall 2020 as well as Spring and Summer 2021 will be waived.

For any current students or graduates who are not returning to campus, you can always mail any items you have checked out back to the law library:

Haub Law Library
Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University
78 North Broadway
White Plains, N.Y. 10603

Reference Services will continue to be available through email and chat. We will also provide reference via zoom or in person for those occasions where live interaction would work best. Patrons can email the reference department to request a zoom session/appointment and a reference librarian will make arrangements with you. We also have a FAQ page that you can consult for quick information needs and to access chat and email reference.

We are still happy to make arrangement to have a librarian present on research and citation in classes. Sessions may be held synchronously through zoom, in person, or asynchronously. Faculty, please contact Deborah Heller to set up a session.
